A Customer’s Post on the Women’s March on Washington, by Dani Madden

This post was submitted by Dani Madden. We’re currently collecting stories from our customers, and supporters, on what the March means to them. The Attic is a strong supporter of the WMOW, and the Resist movement in general. Now is not the time for silence, it’s time for us all to stand up and be heard.

So many people are thinking the Women’s March today is all about Trump which it’s not. So I thought I’d share why I am marching today.
I am marching because I am fucking sick & tired of walking down the street with my toddler girls & being cat called even though I am wearing an ankle length skirt & plain tshirt.
I am fucking sick & tired of having to explain “No I don’t know that man who just yelled at me just ignore it”
I am fucking sick & tired of telling men I’m married & not interested & being told I’m full of shit.
I am fucking tired of knowing damn well my male coworkers got a $1 raise while I got .50 & was told not to talk about it when I complained.
And mostly I’m just fucking sick at the thought of having to one day teach my girls “how to behave so they aren’t raped” & how to defend them.
That’s why I am marching.

If you’re interested in submitting your story, or in any story relating to love, equality, or just being strange in a society that frowns upon it, please, send us an email. We’d like to hear from you!
